NPRBA PROMOTES CONSERVATION THROUGH SUMMER PROGRAM COLLABORATION

The National Parks, Rivers and Beaches Authority NPRBA joined with the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M) Summer Camp to conduct a series of activities as part the Public Education Awareness Outreach Program, geared at promoting proper management, protection and conservation of the environment.

 S.T.E.M – BEACH CLEAN UP

On Thursday 26th July, 2018, the NPRBA facilitated a beach clean-up at the Colonaire Beach, a known sea turtle nesting habitat. Approximately 36 students, ages 6 -11 and their teachers participated in the clean-up initiative, which focused on Marine Pollution. A decomposition timeline activity was done prior to the commencement of the beach clean-up and served to further emphasize the harmful impact of pollution on the environment and ultimately our health.

S.T.E.M - WATER QUALITY COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS TRAINING

On Monday 23rd July, 2018 the NPRBA facilitated a water quality collection and analysis training session with approximately 18 students and teachers from the S.T.E.M SVG Summer Camp.  This activity took place along the South Coast Area ranging from the White Sands Beach to Indian Bay Beach. On Monday 6th August, 2018, approximately 16 students along with 3 teachers participated in a Water Quality Testing Exercise at Mt. Wynne Beach Site. The participants received both theoretical and practical training in collecting water quality samples and analysis of data. Mrs. Abena White - Climate Change and Natural Resource Management Officer for NPRBA facilitated both activities.
